Jogan Health falsified wage records, violated wage laws in Colorado

Jogan Health, LLC, an Englewood-based healthcare staffing company that the state — without verifying past work experience — paid $72 million for COVID-19 vaccination services, intentionally falsified wage records and willfully violated wage laws, a Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) investigation concluded.

While the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) insists it did extensive vetting of Jogan Health, a Denver7 Investigation published in June revealed that Jogan Health did not have the experience it referenced in its application for a state contract. Denver7 confirmed the three entities Jogan Health claimed to have done work for never worked with the company.

CDPHE halted all work with Jogan Health several months before the contract was supposed to end, amid mounting concerns, which included worries about the company’s payroll practices.

Several former Jogan Health employees shared their experiences with Denver7 within the last year, claiming the company owed them wages they worked for, which, in some cases, amounted to several thousands of dollars.

CDLE began an investigation after a former employee filed a wage claim, alleging she was owed roughly $7,000 in unpaid wages for work done between September 2021 and November 2021.
